Stop Chasing More & Ask Yourself Why
The opposite of more is not less; it is enough
is the single, most powerful idea in The Path Made Clear (2019), by Oprah Winfrey.
What an EXTRAORDINARY paradigm shift!
No, really think about it. Is this the math in your head?
When your friend, neighbor, competitor earns more, owns more, has more than you, does that make you less - less successful, less affluent, less capable?
Do you compare yourself to others around you and tell yourself, "If they can do it, I can, too," without asking yourself whether you genuinely want or need what they have?
When you examine your values, lifestyle, commitments, pursuits, does it add up to something that matters to you?
When enough replaces less in the equation, everything shifts. There is a feeling of peace, contentment, centeredness, and accomplishment when we set our sights on our definition of enough and then achieve it.
The pursuit of more rarely leads to happiness, but a clear focus on creating enough in your life does. What are you chasing in the more column of your life? Do you know when it will be enough? When you do, you are on the path to freedom, fulfillment, and a happy life.

I agree, everyone says you need to do this to be a millionaire or successful entrepreneur. That isn’t what I want. I want to provide the best services for my clients but I also want time with friends, families and colleagues- work life balance and I don’t need to be a millionaire

Randi, thank you for taking time to share your personal story. I love that you know what matters to you across all areas of your life. Monetary achievement is only one element of a full life. There are so many messages in business that tell you to measure success on this one variable. There is so much more to creating your happiness equation. The more of us who bring this voice to the conversation, the more we can affirm this for others. Thank you again!
